Planning & Infrastructure

Birmingham Planning Communications with Impact

We have decades of experience delivering effective planning and property communications, and communications for major infrastructure. 

We work across residential, employment, transport, commercial, energy, health and social care. We deliver communications support through the Local Plan process as well as outline and detailed planning. 

Our experienced consultants understand how local and national government impacts the planning process, both directly and indirectly, and our Birmingham-based team has a wealth of knowledge from across the Midlands region. Our approach is always informed by leading local intelligence. 

We understand that no two projects are the same, so we never deliver identical engagement strategies. Events, or press releases and newspaper adverts have their place but we work hard to remain at the cutting-edge of technology to deliver the very best creative strategies for our clients.


The PLMR Birmingham team includes specialists in planning and built environment communications, including public relations, public affairs and digital communications. This is underpinned by a deep and market-leading understanding of the Midlands region with relationships across local authorities, the West Midlands Combined Authority, Local Enterprise Partnerships and Members of Parliament.

Our teams include serving and former elected officials, Planning Committee Chairs, Local Authority and LEP Chief Executives. Our work across the Midlands is informed by the best intelligence, strategic advice and cutting-edge thinking which impacts site due diligence to securing planning approval or an allocation in a Local Plan.



More than ever, we offer digital solutions in place of traditional consultation methods. This includes project websites, targeted social media advertising and our innovative Mapdragon consultation software. We work hard to remain at the cutting edge of technology with our own digital team, including specialists in social media, animation, video, website development and graphic design. 

When communities expect to receive their information online, applicants and developers must use digital channels as part of any effective engagement strategy. This means more than a project website. It means delivering effective messages using digital channels, monitoring and adapting based on a creative data-driven approach.


PLMR works with partner organisations across the Midlands to both deliver projects and add value for our clients. This includes trade bodies such as the Royal Town Planning Institute or Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, and well as organisations, social enterprises and agencies with complementary skill sets. This approach allows us to contribute across the project life cycle and bring together dynamic project teams.
